Pretty in Pinxav
I told you a while back about how I joined Bluum, a monthly sample subscription service similar to Birchbox, but for moms and babies. One of the samples I received was this diaper cream, Pinxav (pronounced "pink salve"). As with many samples I get, I filed it away and forgot about it. Until this week when Reese had a little diaper rash brewing and my regular tube of Desitin was in the diaper bag, in the stroller, blah blah, I'm lazy and didn't want to go get it. So, I pulled out the Pinxav and gave it a try.
First of all, stuff is PINK. It looks like Caladryl and it smells mediciney. Wait, medicinal. That's the word.
Second of all, it is THICK. It's a real barrier cream and you get the impression it does its job.
Third of all, it WORKS. Like whoa. It cleared up the diaper rash in a matter of a day. Both me and my husband were impressed. And not a lot impresses my husband.
The only thing to keep in mind is to let someone know that you are using a pink diaper cream. Otherwise the unwitting party might freak out upon changing a very pink diaper and think the baby has a kidney problem. And he might wake you up when you had at least 7 more minutes to sleep and make you tell him that it was the new diaper cream, remember?
Aside from that, this stuff is GOOD. I'm definitely placing an order and considering it as a gift for new moms, since it's a little hard to come by in stores.
Who knows what other gems I'll find in my Bluum stash...
